Could you put a switch in the light tag so that one could choose between a diffuse/null material? I usually use it so I can better hide the shadows in some fill light I create in a scene. This way the object emitting light don't have it's own shadow casted.
I put it in the bugtracker.

One cannot generate IES previews
Error: Failed to create render output directory: Failed to create directory 'C:\Program Files\MAXON\CINEMA 4D R15\plugins\Indigo for Cinema 4D\preview\renders': Access is denied. (code 5)
Yeah IES previews need an overhaul tbh :) Put that in the bugtracker too

hi,

importing .pigm file in C4D R19 is not correct in some cases.

by example : from Online Material Database download "Matte Terracotta Octagon with Glazed Diamonds" (the first one)
save it in .pigm
try to link it using a material type external in C4D, the images are not present
try to import it using import function provided by the plug-in Indigo for C4D 4.2.22, the same, the images are missing
try to re-import this .pigm in Indigo standalone, all is fine.

in C4D, importing this material is partially correct in .igm file format, image in color is present but image in Roughness/Exponent is missing

I suppose, it's related to Roughness/Exponent when an image is in ths channel because I tried an other mat whithout image in the channel --> it's working correctly

Hi there and thanks a lot for the R20 update :-)

As always I want to bring to attention that in the C4D plugins there are certain things not working that I consider essential for me to be using this renderer on a daily basis. I do not want to offend anyone here. I just made it my mission to fight for those features ;-)

Please see the linked topic I took the time to write and explain why the certain features are so important for me:

Thanks for your time in advance!

Could we have a defined shortcut key for refreshing IPR? It could be used as a mid step solution until fully refresh is attained.

It seems like,
in specular material,
in internal medium,
in RGB value of absorption spectrum --> the color values ​​are changing

EDIT : oups !
I just realized than 0 in C4D is equal to 1 in indigo :mrgreen:
... but the result color is different
